MADISON CO., Fla. (WCTV) -- Three men have been arrested on drug charges following an investigation by the Madison County Sheriff's Office.

On Monday, investigators located a third suspect wanted on active warrants, 18-year-old Ja’Taevious Jacquez Lenard Sims.

Irvine is charged with Possession with Intent to Sell Synthetic Marijuana within 1000 ft of Public Housing Complex, Unlawful Sale of Synthetic Marijuana within 1000 ft of Public Housing Complex, Possession of Synthetic Marijuana with Intent to Sell within 1000 ft of Public Housing Complex and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
